Building an Online SK EM Network

Dr. James Stempien and Dr. Puneet Kapur, supported by the Saskatchewan Department of Emergency Medicine, are looking to formally develop an online platform for the network of emergency department physicians/nurse practitioners across the province. They have hired an external consulting firm, Be the Change Group, to build the brand identity and an online web platform to serve as a provincial resource.

In addition to the SEMAC 2021 conference, Dr. James Stempien and Dr. Puneet Kapur would like to invite you to share your thoughts and ideas at one of the two forums hosted by Be the Change Group. The purpose of the forum is to find out what you think would be helpful to include on the online platform, what you want from the network, and how you would like to engage with the network.

Free/Open to all - Join Be the Change Group and your colleagues via Zoom on one of the following dates (following the closing day remarks of the SEMAC conference):

  • Friday, March 26 @ 1:00 - 1:45 pm (SK); or
  • Saturday, March 27 @ 1:00 - 1:45 pm (SK)
  • If you are registered to one of the workshops, be sure to attend the opposite day.
